President Trump on Thursday called for law enforcement to “get much tougher on street crime” after a gunman shot and wounded six Philadelphia police officers during an hours-long standoff.
The Philadelphia shooter should never have been allowed to be on the streets. He had a long and very dangerous criminal record. Looked like he was having a good time after his capture, and after wounding so many police. Long sentence – must get much tougher on street crime!
